“The journey of love isn’t easy. There’s a frequent detour most of us take. In trying to love others we quickly, unsuspectingly end up trying to turn them into our fantasy of what they should be, rather than quietly, respectively getting a sense of them; listening to them as they change over time and helping them grow gracefully into who God dreams them to be, not what we dream them to be.”
Robert Lawton, S.J. (President, Loyola Marymount University) at the memorial service for Peg Dolan, R.S.H.M.
